Our 100th day and let's Study with Ruby!

Hey friends! Hope you all have had a marvelous weekend!! It is finally sunny here in FL! We have had some craziness with rain and cold. It made my kids really 

In the most kid friendly way!! This past week was also way crazy! Friday we had our 100th day! It was such a fun day! 

I found the dress at Goodwill! Can't believe I paid (although I felt good I was helping those through Goodwill) to look old. Even my sweet intern, Mrs. Diaz got into the spirit. Look at my team!! They were fabulous! One teacher borrowed her grandmother's wig and clothes. I couldn't stop laughing. Some of my kids really got into the spirit, too!

Here are some pictures of our day!

Make our 100th Day hat!

 I loved how their portraits came out! I put them up in the hallway! 

Here are a few that just tickled me!

Check out the hat!!

All blinged out!

Love those eyebrows!

Love her hair and the Mrs. ______!

Is he not the cutest?? (kinda looks like the KCF guy!)

love his wrinkles!

The hat and beard is just too precious!!!

All in all it was a loud and busy day! We got it all in with 10 minutes to spare at the end of the day! I just wanted a Calgon moment at the end of the day! LOL!

This week we are starting off February with Black History and comparing and contrasting Ruby Bridges and Rosa Parks. I admit that sometimes teaching kids who really don't know much about differences can be difficult. I mean, to them everyone is the same. They play with everyone (well, almost!) and everyone is their friend. I almost hate to bring up history's ugly smear of segregation and discrimination but it s our history. I truly love the story of Ruby Bridges! I usually start off with this short clip:

We discuss words like segregation and discrimination and tie that to our learning from MLK. I will be using some simple activities from my little mini-unit that I'd like to share with you!

I have included this cute little compare and contrast craftivity:

I cannot wait for my kiddos to work on these this week! 

Well, off to be a domestic goddess now and make dinner! In the meantime, I will be back later this week with another writing idea for you! I hope I can persuade you to come back! LOL! Have a great week! 


  1. OMG Leslie! The lil guy with the big gray bushy eyebrows is classic! So fun! We celebrate ours on Friday and think we'll need to pull up your post and show our kids so they can be inspired. Love this!
